We have taken our full and current range out to Japan this week, to exhibit at Foodex 2018 in Tokyo.
We have been given this wonderful opportunity via Scottish Development International (SDI) and feature as part of the fabulous produce from Scotland.
Dale is manning the stand by himself this week, as Vicky is waiting patiently for a new grandchild to arrive any day.
Later, after the first day, all the Scottish exhibitors were bused to the British Embassy in Tokyo, to present their goods to potential buyers and importers.
The room was packed and McQueen Gin tasting samples were the first to go.
The second day brought the product presentations, again to a pack room of potential customers, Dale through a translator, talked about our little Distillery in the heart of Scotland. They played our 7 minute video, that showed scenes from the local area, our distillery – inside and out, how we make our gin and bottle our gin. The audience were also treated to a sneak preview of some of our future plans which we will disclose in April.
